Hi, nirmalsoni

There is no limitation on timespan during which you can take two different exams. You can even take them in the same day. In your case, you can take the BSCI exam next month without any problem.

Wow thats cool, so you mean to say that as soon as i pass the BSCI exam i can be ready with a week or two to take thats cool..i think i might have taken the policy says to wait for 180 days to retake the same certification with an identical exam number

You need wait 5 days after exam failing

You need wait 180 days after passing exam to retake SAME exam..

there is no limitation for taking different exams (fe. i passed two CCNP exams in same day)
